Straight Talk

 1. AG Gani Patail is again courting controversy by the revelation in Malaysia Today, which appeared on the 24th August 2011. If the allegation is not thoroughly investigated, it will be perceived badly by the Rakyat. Malaysia Today produced documentary evidence of what appears to be AG Gani Patail receiving gratification to take sides in a corporate boardroom tussle in Ho Hup Construction Berhad. Previously, photographs had already surfaced in various blogs of AG Gani Patail with that company’s previous Managing Director, Dato Vincent Lye.

2. This revelation would surely destroy any residual credibility left about the AG Chambers. It appears that criminal prosecution is instituted at the whims and fancies of AG Gani Patail not on the basis of right or wrong but on might is right.

3. I have previously criticized AG Gani Patail over his Haj Trip with Tajudin Ramli’s proxy, one Shahidan Shafies. Instead of taking action against AG Gani Patail, alarmingly I was subjected to an immediate investigation by the MACC based on just a false allegation in an anonymous blog. I was then publicly humiliated when the MACC Operations Evaluation Panel (OEP) Chairman, Tan Sri Dr. Hadenan Abdul Jalil only conditionally cleared me. My demands for an unconditional and unequivocal clearance have yet to receive any response from the MACC.

4. The invoices, receipts and cheque shown in Malaysia Today do not require complex forensic accounting. These documents paint a thousand words of the alleged renovation works done for AG Tan Sri Ghani Patail’s bungalow at Seremban 2 – Sri Carcosa.

5. These documents constitute clear evidence of corrupt gratification. The MACC must show independence and courage by acting swiftly to investigate this matter. To facilitate such an investigation, AG Gani Patail MUST immediately step down. These are clear steps that must be taken to preserve the integrity of the AG Chamber and the Government. Otherwise, the MACC will be regarded as impotent and dare not take action against those in the corridors of power.
